Happy International Coffee Day!
Updated on 30 September 2022

Coffee lovers assemble as 1 October is International Coffee Day!

From Americanos, espresso shots and mochas, we all latte coffee.

Dubai is a melting pot for all things dining, with a wide range of restaurants and cafes available, the one constant drink on every menu is coffee. 

From dedicated coffee shops or enjoying a delicious cup of coffee with your meal, there is no experience like the first sip of coffee during the day.

Coffee has been around for centuries and can be traced back to coffee forests on the Ethiopian plateau.

The name 'coffee' is based on the name where coffee was first found in Kaffa, Ethiopia.

Over the years as coffee started gaining traction, there have been plantations established all around the world to bring the love of coffee to everyone.

Coffee beans are grown from a coffee plant and take around a year to produce flowers and around four years to bear fruits.

At the 10-year mark, coffee beans are produced and these plants have a life span of 30 to 40 years.

The taste of coffee beans can change based on the climate and location in which it is grown.

The four most common types of coffee found are Arabica, Robusta, Excelsa and Liberica.

Coffee is also known to give a boost of energy as well as has multiple health benefits.

This International Coffee Day, let's say cheers to coffee that we definitely cannot live without and head down to your favourite coffee spot to celebrate the day!
